Read-a-thon: 8am, my Introduction

(No, I'm not gonna post every hour. Mike took the Pirate out for a couple hours and it's hard to concentrate on reading when the Bug needs changing and breakfast and stuff.)

My introduction:
Where are you reading from today?
Rapid City, SD

3 facts about me …
1. I have two brothers and two sons.
2. I drive a station wagon (Ford Freestyle)
3. I got a new cell phone yesterday and am now the person with the annoying ringtones.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
13, but hope to read 2 or 3

Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)?
Not really, this is my first one and I don't know what to expect. To finish a couple books is about it.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?
This is my first!

Hour 2 results:
Minutes read: 16
Pages read:18
Total read: 60
Minutes online: 20
Minutes nursing:6
Minutes changing diapers and cleaning Bugs: 10
Minutes lost:8
Drinks consumed: 1 cup coffee
Food eaten: 4 mini donuts

Brief thoughts on current book: Gimme Shelter is still good.



  1. You've got quite a challenge ahead of you, what with changing diapers and nursing! Glad to see you haven't set any unreasonable reading goals. Hope you enjoy whatever time you can grab for reading!

  2. Good luck! sounds like you have your hands full.

  3. Good luck! Sounds like you're going to be busy; I hope you have fun as well.

  4. Mini donuts will help you through. Hope you get a lot of good reading done.

  5. Oooh mini-donuts. I used to love the apple cider ones they came out with in the fall, but I can't find them in NM. Maybe it's a NY thing. Anyways, yummy food and good reading!

  6. I can't imagine doing this with small children--you're awesome! Happy reading!

  7. Did you name your cell phone??

    Can you please pass the mini-donuts?

  8. Good luck today! I'll look forward to your next update!
